The City of Ferguson Missouri a Suburb of St. Louis Along With the Rest Of the Nation Is In Outrage Over The Shooting of Michael Brown

On August 9, 2014 in the City of Ferguson Missouri another armed African American teen was shot to death by a Caucasian Police Officer, Darren Wilson, 28. When I first heard of this shooting, the first thing that came to mind was they got another one. I also said the police officer Darren Wilson, was going to get away with it. On November 24, 2014 the Grand Jury decided not to indict Darren Wilson. That was not anything new, it was just another African American. This has been going on for hundreds of years and it will continue as long as we have this prejudice legal system. Yes, I said it the legal system is so prejudice against people of color it is outrageous! After the verdict was read protester in the streets expressed how they felt and it was nothing nice. The protesters in Ferguson Missouri torn the streets up burned down buildings, now they are under a curfew. In Oakland California protesters shut down streets and a freeway. New York City had riots after the verdict was announced. Boston also had protesters voicing the outrage. This was not just one race fueling their indignation it was people of all races. What we can do as a people, is to keep voicing our disgrace for injustice and just maybe the legal system will change.
